What information should you save for your interview?

What is the best way to write a CV?

A clear concise format that is easy to read and to the point. You want it no more than 2 pages and use bullet points. Use the opening paragraph wisely to get a bit of your personality over.

 

How often should you update your CV?

You should update your CV when you are applying for a new role or a different role or promotion internally.
Only update it with factual information or updates on your personal interests. You should keep a record of all your achievements at work separately to add to your CV later if you need to.

 

What should you include in a cover letter?

A cover letter should explain why you are the best person for the role. Use it to give examples that back-up what you have said in your CV. It should be no longer than 1 A4 page and tailored specifically to the company and role that you are applying for, avoiding vague and generic terms.
